SAULT STE. MARIE, ON – This local business knows that it’s been a tough year for everyone, but some of the smallest people have had the biggest difficulties of all.
With all of these new changes in society, children have had to make some serious adjustments to so many aspects of their lives.
With the challenges of online learning, social distancing from both friends and loved ones, and even changes to major holidays, kids have had to be as resilient as all of us in these unprecedented times – a hard ask of such young minds.
To help combat the blues in these trying times, a new local Lego business The Brickspace – Twin Soo Bricks, has opened up a contest to help spread a little Christmas cheer to the kids of Sault Ste. Marie.
Introducing the first annual Brickspace Secret Santa, a contest where you can nominate a deserving child to win a Lego Mini-figure, with one special twist – it will look just like them!
The Brickspace will then choose not just one, but 5 lucky winners to get their own personalized Lego person.
Owner-operator Derek Pearce says “It’s our way of giving back to the community.”
They have yet to open a physical store yet, but that’s not going to stop them from spreading cheer!
Pearce had planned to open his new downtown building block store in early 2020 but plans were halted because of the pandemic.
Instead, he’s been working on custom projects such as the Sault Ste. Marie Museum custom building block set and a few fun new Sault Historical Collection sets to hit the shelves in early 2021, along with the storefront location.
To nominate a deserving child to win their very own customized Lego Mini-figure visit
thebrickspace.ca/secret-santa before December 14 and fill out the online form.
The winners will be announced on December 15, giving enough time for the production of these one-of-a-kind personalized mini-figures.
